Who won at the British and Irish Association of Law Librarians, BIALL 2024 Conference

Michael, Paul and Graham attended the British and Irish Association of Law Librarians annual BIALL Conference in Leeds, UK this month.

As always, a great event and a chance to meet up with friends, colleagues and everyone attending the conference!

It was also chance to meet old and new clients who have joined the Soutron family recently, say hello and discuss their ideas for the future of the library service within the firm.




Go Beyond the Library

Fast, flexible and secure information access for lawyers

Graham Partridge, our very own resident legal librarian and VP of Research and Development, provided a brief talk: Bridging the gap between Library, Know-how & beyond.

During his presentation, Graham discussed the challenges faced by many information professionals and library teams when managing library and know-how. Looking into solutions that can help and exploring how the true flexibility of Soutron can be used to bridge the gap and bring library & know-how closer together to help users find the answers they need, quickly and efficiently.

Also, taking a quick look into the future and how AI could play a part!

Graham Partridge - Go Beyond Library...

“We are always seeking ways to save our clients time and introduce even more efficient workflows to daily tasks,” says Graham. “Our clients are at the heart of everything we do and the ideas they provide are built into the roadmap of the future development of our application. It was great to meet everyone again at BIALL and we are already looking forward to next year’s event.”

With all of the highly informative sessions and talks, you maybe didn’t get a chance to drop by and say hello, if not, you can always get in touch with us at any time and book an online call. We would be very happy to provide an online introduction to Soutron and listen to your requirements and needs for the future library automation within your firm.
